The Associate of Arts in Teaching degree program is designed for teacher education transfer students.
This is a program of study based on specific learning outcomes and is comprised of foundation-level pedagogical coursework, field experience, and general education which meet academic content, outcomes and requirements of the first two years in a teacher education program in early childhood development. The program provides students with seamless transfer into a teacher education program at any Maryland college or university. Students should acquaint themselves with the requirements of the early childhood education department at the college or university to which transfer is contemplated and also consult with an academic advisor in planning an appropriate program. The College’s transfer advisor can provide additional information regarding the transfer requirements of institutions within the University of Maryland system.
Students must meet all program requirements, including course content and outcomes, a grade of “C” or better in all courses, a cumulative grade point average of 2.75, an approved portfolio, and passing scores on the Praxis-I Exam. Note: It is strongly recommended that the Praxis-I Exam be taken by the completion of 30 credits hours in the program.
